We have a Lantana bush in the front yard where an old leaning Maple used to be. We cut it down in the fall and it winters over. Each Spring it sends up the most beautiful green shoots of leaves and we cut away the last remaining dead wood. It grew exceptionally large this year! It has bright orange and yellow blossoms and the butterflies adore it! They were out there this morning just kissing each blossom and taking the sweetness away with them. We both were out there snapping like crazy! Bill's camera is better than mine and his stopped the rapid wing movement in its tracks. Mine is not that quick.
